View Full Version : Is it worth it to be in Love?

Hello all. I hope that you all will enjoy a debate on the inner emotion.
I think that the title speaks for itself, but is it all worth it? To open up your heart to that specail Juliet, or Romeo? Is worth the fact that they can rip that heart out of your chest as you watch them slowly walk away? I think not. I know that in the end it comes down to whether or not you trust them, but if your heart had been torn out once would you be able to love again?

First off, I must say, Romeo and Juliet aren't the right ones to choose for that. Other than the fact they were basically a satire on love young, Romeo was just as 'passionately in love' with Roselind before moving onto Juliet, but was rejected. It was kind of hinted if all that pressure hadn't been put on them, it wouldn't be too long before he'd've gotten over his limerence for Juliet. So 'opening your heart to your Romeo or Juliet' is just opening your heart to the failures of young love and all that nonsense that comes with moving too fast and letting the attraction and fantasies override the reality of things.
On another note, is it worth it not to love? And what love are we talking about here? I'm going to assume, because of the tone, you only mean a romantic kind of love--but platonic love can be just as damaging. All of this goes with that as well, and I believe it to be worth it. Because that's part of the trust in it--taking that first step to let yourself open up.
And yes. You can love after your heart's been torn to shreds. You have to be careful, and make sure it's someone who wants to stay with you as well--having similar fears and both of you working to overcome them can help. Also, make sure the person's mature enough, not moving too fast, and both of you understand not all relationships last, so that if it starts to fall apart you can both choose whether or not it's worth to continue fighting for or if it's best to let it go before things deteriorate.
Learning to trust again after being torn up is just part of growing up. Giving up on relationships because of an awful ending to one... isn't a reason to give up. It just means you'll have to work harder to move on and trust another person in a relationship.
Sorry for such a rambling, long reply.

Simple answer: Yes it is worth it.

Well, I can understand that, but I find it worth it not to love because now I don't have to feel any pain. No hurt inside. If I were to go out and open myself up again then that just leaves another chance to get myself hurt again. The real question that lingers is "could a human deal with that kind of pain twice?"

Pain is what reminds you you're alive, ans what makes the good times feel even better. You can't live your life in a bubble; life is to be lived with all of its risks and catastrophes, not watched through a window. You're eighteen, seriously. The rest of your life is out there and there's always better things to come. Yes you can deal with pain twice, because pain is always different, even if the circumstances are the same or similar. You move on, find something better. Life is always worth the pain, because it's missing the good times that hurt most - so just go out there and make more good times. Lord, don't waste your life behind a bubble screen because of a failed teenage love, just learn from it.

Well, maybe. I never really had thought about it that way.

Love is pretty much telling that person that their worth the risk, True Love is is wanting that person happy no matter what. Love is only worth it if you beleive it is.
I can't believe this subject exists. Love is the only reason to live.
And isn't this like the other topic you posted? Grow up already. I hate to be mean, but c'mon, this isn't a complex question. Anime characters question things like this--not real humans.

Is any worth objective? Can this question be answered objectively? No. I just logic bombed yo weak ass philosophy
Love, it hurts so much but it will pay off.
Life without love is like a rose without petals ~ pointless<3

Love might be worth itself but how do you know when you find it? And if you think you find love but its not love than is it worth all the heartbreak before that one special someone?

Your opinion that the Romeo/Juliet you choose CAN rip off your heart really stands valid pal...
that is the thing of loving someone.....
you have 2 possible outcomes....
1. You get your love....
2. You get your heart ripped...
And believe me pal, both of them do you good,
my opinion is...
Go Ahead, And love.........

"It's better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all!"
"Love is pain!"
No love, no life.

.. Wait pardon me, itís no doubt that Shakespeare was a great author and Romeo & Juliet are worth it for the fame; inspiring and heart felting. However, I think it wasnít the best story for there are more must read story. [also donít like the tragedy in the end] lol
Love is worth it, if the person you love is worth it.

Damn, Cay. Too fast. Too fast.

Newbs - don't bring back old threads, especially if you have nothing relevant to add to the discussion.
